New S-Control, language suggestions?

We are looking to build an S-Control, and are exploring our options for what to develop it in.  From the docs, it looks like the three options are ActiveX, Applet, or Javascript.

I was wondering if anyone had any good or bad experiences with any of these technologies. 

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

It all depends on what your scontrol needs to do.  The only real reason to use activex or applets is if you need to write trusted code that is not encumbered by the sandbox security imposed on javascript, ie: if you need to write files to the client, access an on premise datasource, etc.
